Composition of the 1922 Seanad

The Free State Seanad was elected in stages and thus considered to be in permanent session. However, as a gesture of continuity with its Free State predecessor, the first Seanad elected after 1937 is numbered as the "Second Seanad". The Free State Senate, despite the occurrence of five senatorial elections before its abolition, is considered to have been a single 'Seanad' for the duration of its existence and is thus referred for that whole period as the "First Seanad".

There were a total of 60 seats in the Free State Seanad. In 1922, 35 Senators were elected by Dáil Éireann, and 25 were nominated by the President of the Executive Council, W. T. Cosgrave.

The following table shows the composition by party when the 1922 Seanad first met on 6 December 1922.
